No other sport these days features as many beautiful ladies as women’s tennis. Surfing may come close, and soccer has some gorgeous women as well, but the WTA is second to none.

It wasn’t always this way. Roughly when the 21st century began, beautiful women started pouring into the sport. From the bottom to the top of the WTA rankings, there are incredibly attractive women. In previous years, the women weren’t unattractive, but only a handful looked as good as the women today.

This slideshow is going to examine the prettiest of all generations, including one player whose career dates back as early as 1919. She was one of the most dominant tennis players in history, as well as very easy on the eyes. If she wore what the ladies wear today, she would’ve been considered a flapper, but look at No. 9 on this list and you’ll see that she was the cat’s pajamas regardless.

This slideshow also features two pairs of sisters, a few players who model (or modeled) on the side, and the majority of the 25 women have won a Grand Slam Title. That’s what makes the WTA so great. The players may get a little extra attention for being attractive, but they can play as well.

People love to bash Anna Kournikova for not winning a singles title, but she won several doubles titles, including two Grand Slams. She was better at tennis than most of us are at anything, so let’s give her a break. Every player on this list has won something, which makes them that much more attractive. Talent is beauty in my opinion. Enjoy the 25 most beautiful women in tennis history.
